Brands like Coke and Pepsi were familiar, admirably entrenched, and from a distance, under the right lighting, still sexy. But up close, juxtaposed against a genuinely fresh product like Red Bull?

Favorite part of the story, as reported at KTVU.com: Supervisor Sophie Maxwell, the vegetarian totalitarian who cooked up this little morsel of clue-free coercion, exclaims, "I want people to think about not having meat on a certain day. I want people to think about what else they could eat.” And then elaborates: "San Franciscans are open. We think about so many things. We think about animals. We care--we have more dogs than children here."
Got that? San Franciscans are open-minded free-thinkers, so that's why it's okay for a government panel to tell them they shouldn't eat meat on Mondays.
Also: will all those dogs be going vegetarian on Mondays too?
